Our Bushwalking Track & Conservation Volunteers have been busy - Track Clearing - Croajingalong National Park – 10 to 15 June 2017

The much anticipated visit to the Croajingalong National Park by Bushwalking Victoria’s Bushwalking Track and Conservation (BTAC) Volunteers has been hailed a success by any measure according to Project Leader, Mike Grant.

The track clearing event in the Croajingalong National Park was centred on Wingan Inlet and the Point Hicks Light Station and was our most extensive undertaking yet. Over 6 days the event was one of our most distant from the Melbourne CBD.

The crew was made up of 14 volunteers from 4 clubs plus 2 Bushwalking Victoria individual members and operated under the direction of Parks Victoria Area Ranger Robyn Korn. In another first for BTAC, volunteers were asked to put their kayaking skills to the test in getting to one of the work sites with equipment in tow.

At the conclusion of the project our volunteers had cleared and made navigable 6 tracks, Petrel Point Track, Rame Head Track, Easby Track, Wingan River Rapids Track, Elusive Lake Track; and Sledge and West Beach Tracks. Thanks to generous the volunteers.

Put this wonderful destination on your must visit list.

Administration Assistant Required

Bushwalking Victoria is looking for the services of a proactive Administration Assistant to work with their Office Manager and the Board.

Your administration background in a busy environment will be an asset. Intermediate Microsoft Office Suite skills, including Excel, typing, strong attention to detail and follow through, are a must in this role. Experience in online applications such as Salesforce, Joomla and MailChimp is preferred, but not essential.

Liaison with members, general office administration and secretarial support where required, will keep you challenged and busy.
If you are a proactive person with a strong customer service focus, take pride and ownership in your contribution, have excellent attention to detail and want to be part of a growing organisation this could be for you.

Please email your CV with a covering letter to Patsy Scales at admin@bushwalkingvictoria.org.au or telephone 03 9846 1132 for further information.

We have a new phone number - 03 9846 1132.

150th anniversary of McMillan's Track - Walkers from Ben Cruachan Bushwalking Club and VMTC are walking the 220km McMillan's Track end-to-end. They started Friday, 30 October and will finish on Thursday, 12 November, starting at Omeo and finishing at Woods Point.
They are carrying a Spot device. Follow their progress at: http://ow.ly/U6Unj
The walkers will be supported by members of their clubs, some of whom will join them to walk shorter sections.
Currently the track is not in good condition, so as they go along, they will identify where and what work needs to be done to improve the track.

This article gives some fantastic hints on how to stay dry and comfortable during a wet, windy and cold hike. I particularly like the "how to dry your gear" hints - point number 9. Does anyone have any other good tips and hints?
